Rainy Evening

We never measure

the worth of just one rain-drop…

just the water gauge.

Carol Forrester is a twenty-four year old writer trying to be a better one. Don’t ask her what her hobbies are because the list doesn’t get much beyond, reading, writing and talking about the same. She has a 2:1 BA degree in history from Bath Spa University and various poems and stories scattered across the net. Her flash fiction story ‘Glorious Silence’ was named as River Ram Press’ short story of the month for August 2014 and her short story ‘A Visit From The Fortune Teller’ has been showcased on the literary site Ink Pantry’s. Most recently, her poem ‘Sunsets’ was featured on Eyes Plus Words, and her personal blog Writing and Works hosts a mass of writing from across the last five years. She has been lucky enough to write guest posts for sites such as Inky Tavern and Song of The Forlorn and is always open to writing more and hosting guest bloggers here on Writing and Works. With hopes of publishing a novel in the next five years and perhaps a collection or two of smaller works, Carol Forrester is nothing if not ambitious. Her writing tries to cover every theme in human life and a lot of her work pulls inspiration from her own eccentric family in the rural wonders of Shropshire life.

    Carol, I’ve just followed your blog as of today, as I have been wanting to learn to write poetry and another blog friend gave me the link to your guest post today about learning to write poetry. I do love your writing. I’ve been reading some of your Haiku poetry and have a question. Is there a rule as to the number of words per line? Many of yours differ. I’ve seen 3-5-4 etc., but hey seem to differ. I will do as your recommend in your Guest Post and read more poetry as well as get away from the computer more and experience life a little more.thanks!

    • I use the 5-7-5 syllable rule for haiku poetry. It’s a more traditional form.
      I’m glad you liked the post and it’s lovely to hear someone recommended my blog. May I ask who it was?

Please take the time to tell me what you think, I love receiving feedback. :)
